Mozart Cornation Mass

Founded in 1970, Tredagh Singers are a long established choir, originally named St Peter’s Choral Group. It currently has approximately 60 members who enjoy singing a wide repertoire ranging from mediaeval polyphony to the modern composers, under the direction of Geraldine Doggett, a well know choir director and local musician. 

Mozart completed the Mass on March 23, 1779.   The mass appears to have acquired the nickname “Coronation” at the Imperial court in Vienna in the early nineteenth century after becoming the preferred music for royal and imperial coronations as well as services of thanksgiving.

Following a very successful performance in St Peter’s Basilica, Rome in 2015, Tredagh Singers travelled to Berlin in 2017 and performed a number of outstanding concerts.  They have just returned from Westport where they had a evening  concert with Cór Mhaigh Eo.

The choir have had a long association with Down Syndrome, Louth Meath Branch and have held concerts for this worthy cause in Listoke Gardens for the last two years. The proceeds of this concert will also support Down Syndrome, Louth Meath. The funds raised will go towards their education projects for children with Down Syndrome from pre-school to 18 year olds and young adults. 

This combination of local musical talent both orchestral and choral is going make an exceptional performance that should  not to be missed

Geraldine Doggett Musical Director said

“The choir are really looking forward to performing this Mozart masterpiece.  It is really exciting to be part of an ambitious choral project like this.”

Michael McCormick Chairman Tredagh Singers remarked
